BOOK EDITING FOR NONFICTION AND FICTION MANUSCRIPTS

You’ve worked incredibly hard on your book, and now it’s time to entrust it to an editor. It’s important to choose someone who can appreciate your work, take the time to refine it, and provide the quality your readers will expect.

  • Traditionally published authors: Whether you’re preparing your manuscript for an agent or for a publisher, I have the experience you need to polish your work with the care you’d expect from a professional book editor. I know the industry and can prepare your work for success.

  • Self-published authors: I’m by no means a “churn-and-burn” editor. I have real experience in publishing houses and marketing firms and will provide the high-quality results you’d expect from any big publisher.

Although I enjoy editing many genres, I have a special interest in nonfiction, particularly health and wellness. Whatever the genre, I intentionally collaborate with authors whose books will teach me something new or reveal an interesting perspective.

Here are the levels of editing I can help you with:

  • manuscript assessment to identify problems and provide editorial recommendations

  • developmental editing

  • line editing/content editing/substantive editing

  • copyediting

  • proofreading

See my FAQ for an explanation of types of editing.
